We started out by having song requests. Because this was an "informal" service, Pastor Anderson's daughter was free to roam the auditorium during the singing. Of course, she immediately crawled over to him, and then began songleading with him.
After the brief service, we did Sword drills: a reference is called out, and whoever can find it first in their Bible jumps out of their seat and reads the verse.
Next, we enjoyed some really great pizza, as well as chocolate fondue. After everyone was stuffed, we worked off the food through fierce competition by playing board games. It was equally fun and intense - almost everyone was highly competitive!
We ended the evening with the Lord's Supper and prayer. It was a great start to the new year for all who came.
